The New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) presents a forum to explore education issues and the impact of state-level politics on New Jersey’s public school districts, hosted by Ray Pinney, of NJSBA. The format brings together state and local education leaders for a lively dialogue on the latest developments. Our children’s education is too important not to discuss and debate.
